Synopsis

From your dividing cells to your beating heart, this book takes a comprehensive look at the human body and reveals the extraordinary way your anatomy and physiology intertwine.

* How does your brain really see you?

* How does age affect your muscles and bones?

* How and why cells die?

* Why the shape of a criminal's hands could be used to help identify them?

* Can you exercise too much?

* Which of the five senses is most important?

* What triggers puberty?

* Why your immune system has more than one line of defence?

* Why anatomical quirks are more important than you think?

* How long does it take for your body to digest food?

* How many times does your heart beat in a day?

* Why do we sleep?



An accessible, comprehensive and fully illustrated guide to this absorbing area, Cracking Anatomy will both educate and excite all readers.
